No More “Business as Usual”
Ephesians 4:11 ~ 12 “So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up…”
Enjoy this video from a Giant in the Faith, Danny Silk as he shares very truthfully and accurately, mixed with humor how these powerful gifts of Christ (Eph 4:11) are designed and how they function together!!
Church for the Nations – Flagstaff is actively and aggressively after the implementation of a full functioning Five Fold church! Jesus modeled the Five Gifts in Himself, which qualified Him to then GIVE THEM AWAY, and, He also made two statements found in Scripture that carry in them an expectation for us to reproduce a Five Fold ministry / church in our season of life! Jesus said in John 17:4 – “I glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do.” The work Jesus said that Glorified God in the earth was the FIVE FOLD WORK and MINISTRY!!! Jesus then said in John 14:12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.” Do you see it clearly now? Jesus intends for us to have a fully functioning and cooperative FIVE FOLD Church and Ministry so that is what we are going to do! Listen friends, this model of ministry is intimidating and somewhat complicated, maybe that is why so many churches shy away from this and are completely pastoral in nature! However, allowing people to be powerful in their gifting, walking completely in their calling and, not being threatened by another’s success is a Kingdom Mandate! So as for CFTN.F the days of being only driven or led by the pastor are long gone, we are letting the Lion from the Tribe of Judah loose to be once again be powerful in the earth!
I love the picture below and what it says – it is an accurate statement from another giant in the faith, Kris Valloton!
